Cleaning up
Hello, It's Me!

Heads up!

Random.  No photos.

Lordy, it's only 10:30 and I've already been struggling for a couple of hours to keep my head up.  I had my fifth (?) wake-up-in-the-middle-of-the-night night's sleep last night.  Maybe it's only the fourth.  I don't remember.  Worry, stress, hotness all conspire against me at about 2:00-3:00 a.m.

Not that kind of hotness.

The weather is improving just in time for the holiday and fireworks!  I haven't decided whether I'll go to see them or watch them on TV.  Two sisters and four nephews will be here... so I may not be able to resist.

I grabbed two little Hershey bars from the candy bowl at work yesterday.  I've been very good about NOT grabbing ANYTHING from the candy bowl recently, but I think my resolve has weakened with fatigue.  I ate one -- and put the other back!  Maybe my taste for chocolate has taken a definite turn to the dark side because it tasted YUCKY.

I went to Zumba last Tuesday and there's not another session until next Tuesday.  We're doing a routine to THRILLER, which I'm lovin'.

I still sometimes find myself in a state of shock and disbelief that Michael Jackson is dead.  And then I'm just sad... his poor kids and family.

At my brother's wedding reception, my nephew Sam, then still in high school, kept requesting Michael Jackson.  The DJ resisted, Sam persisted, all night long.  FINALLY, at the end of the night, the DJ spun one -- I honestly can't remember whether it was Beat It or Billie Jean, or maybe even something else.  We were all so surprised and taken aback at Sam's unabashed, joyful and skilled DANCING!!  He jumped up, hit the floor, put the moves on, and nailed it!  No one was more surprised than his dad!!  I had already put my camera away (p&s film days!) and fumbled it open in time to catch one shot... absolutely priceless.  One of my favorite MJ moments.

I'm about half-way through the fifth repeat of Transverse ... worth a photo soon!

My sister had mostly really great news at the doc yesterday.  Keep thinkin' those good thoughts and sending good wishes.  And THANK YOU!!



I cracked up at "not that kind of hotness." Heeheehee.

I hope that particular fire cools down. Great story about your nephew. :D


Sometime in the last year or so Hershey's lost their mind and decided we couldn't tell the difference between the real deal version of their milk chocolate and if they cut back on the chocolate and added, get this, some waxy substance to fill that space. Au contraire! I used to find the occasional bit of Hershey's (maybe a Kiss) a nice treat to fill an empty corner, but now I just don't care for them at all. Maybe they will see the light and we will get Hershey's 'Classic' one day soon. Meanwhile, loved the story about your nephew! Sweet dreams.


I hope you got a good night's sleep last night!
